Dr. Gabrielle Anderson D.O.

What is your hometown?

Batavia, Iowa.


Where did you attend medical school?

Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine (LUCOM) – Lynchburg, VA.


What other educational credentials do you have?

B.S. in Dietetics with a Minor in Chemistry from – University of Vermont

Registered Dietetic Technician (DTR) through the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR).


What are your particular clinical interests and why?

I am particularly interested in preventive medicine because it is an integral part of improving the quality of life for my patients. Consistent implementation of preventive medicine reduces burdens on my patients and the community alike by lowering healthcare costs and increasing overall wellness and productivity.


Why did you choose Family Medicine?

I chose to pursue Family Medicine because I enjoy the unique challenges of broad scope practice and working closely with my patients to meet their individual needs. I find special fulfillment in treating patients as a Family Medicine physician because it requires more than just treating their symptoms but is also contingent upon understanding the complexity of their backgrounds. Successful problem solving occurs in shared decision making with my patients and encompasses medical, social, and environmental factors, which is incredibly rewarding.


Why did you choose the Community Based Family Medicine Residency program?

Hailing from a small town in rural Iowa, I have personal experience with inaccessibility to medical care, as well as lack of continuity with healthcare providers. This was my inspiration and motivation for pursuing medicine and the Community Based Family Medicine Residency program offers the training I need to expertly tackle broad scope patient care in the outpatient setting.


What are your hobbies and interests outside of medicine?

I enjoy drinking coffee, reading fiction, playing guitar, writing music, and long hikes with my collie, Joy.
